Collective Willeto: The Visionary Carvings of a Navajo Artist
Navajo medicine man Charlie Willeto (1897-1964) was also an artist--known for his ritualist figures of human and animal forms that carry the potency of the Navajo spirit while transcending to the realm of the mythic--who took up carving late in his life and found himself at the forefront of Navajo folk artists. This book presents some one hundred of Willeto's alluring visionary figures, and the accompanying essays discuss Willeto's remarkable art and life, including the taboo nature of Willeto's art.
